The Turtlezogian Cult of Abbots

The Turtlezogian Cult of Abbots is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by IDK with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 4.356 billion Abbotsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abbotsford. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abbotsian economy, worth 657 trillion Waffleses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,900 Waffleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People make a career out of medical voyeurism, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abbots's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is turtlezogoth.

Abbots is ranked 131,358th in the world and 28th in Lorania for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.11 on the Rand Index.
